Image matting, which is an ill-posed problem, requires a user input trimap or some strokes to obtain an alpha matte of the foreground object. A ?ne user input is essential to obtain a good result, but it is both tedious and time consuming. In this talk, I will introduce our work on image matting problem named as active matting model. In active matting model, we explore the intrinsic relationship between the user input and matting algorithm to address the problem of where and when the user should provide the input. Our aim is to discover the most informative sequence of regions for user input in order to produce a good alpha matte with minimum labeling efforts. The proposed framework involves human in the loop by sequentially detecting informative regions for trivial human judgement. Comparing to traditional matting algorithms, the proposed model requires much less efforts and can produce satisfactory results with around 10 regions.
